Welcome from Our Sponsor


On behalf of E-ACT, thank you for your interest in The Crest Academy. The Crest Academy is the manifestation of E-ACT’s values and our ambitions for the 14,500 young people in our care. The academy’s purpose built new building features state-of-the-art learning facilities alongside caring and experienced staff help to make The Crest Academy a special place.

E-ACT works towards a future where a child’s opportunities are never limited by his or her background. Our academies not only improve educational outcomes for our young people, but also prepare them for life beyond the academy gates. We provide enriching experiences that develop learners culturally, socially and emotionally, which ensure our students are ready for the world of work, further and higher education.

We are delighted that you want to find out more about The Crest Academy for your son or daughter and invite you to meet the Principal at our open day or at another time by convenient to you, by appointment through the school reception
